LORIS designed the replacement of the Matterhorn Circle Bridge over Gore Creek. This bridge which is a main thoroughfare for a multitude of utilities was in critical condition due to scour damage at the abutments. Acquiring right-of-way was not an option, as it would have incurred additional lead time that would have forced the existing bridge to experience another spring runoff season, which was an unacceptable risk. However, being located in a residential area, aesthetics and environmental sensitivity were key considerations. The replacement bridge consists of a prestressed box spread beam superstructure on wall type abutments with multiple rows of piles and cantilevered wingwalls up to 30’ long.
